Good morning - its a beautiful spring day here - in August!
I am soooooo late for this but have finally got the card finished and up (forgot the washi tape twist first time). On Wednesday I got a case of urgent Spring Fever and just had to clean up my craft area. I am sitting here is a small area of CLEAN, TIDY peacefulness. Bliss! By Friday, when I woke with a steaming cold, I was not sure what I was actually doing but making cards was not one of them. Finally got the vacuum cleaning done by about 4.30 and everything put back and started to think about this latest Lollipop Ladies challenge. My card has to be up on Saturday morning and I made it by about 1 hour 40 minutes I think!
This is the inspiration photo
The spin challenge is washi tape - here is my take
Now, I am not actually a big fan of crocodiles, although I must admit these are pretty cute. Even so, to me there is still a slight menacing look about them. After seeing them in the Northern Territory (they actually smell/stink of fish up close at Kakadu and they are so prehistoric to look at; also too many stories out of the NT about them eating tourists and locals at regular intervals for me! Love everything about the NT except them and the bats!
Anyway, I was suffering and running short of time, and I knew I did not have any stamps of crocs. Also my brain was fried, and I found thinking a trial (quiet, all family members out there). I knew that one of the latest magazines had an article on creating a wire croc and other animals - foolishly I tried to do this. HA! After 30 minutes it hit the bin, and I was searching the www space for a suitable digi!
Found one almost straight away - Paper Shelter had this little duo COLOURED ALREADY! You beauty! Die cut out, didn't wait for the ink to dry before sponging some light blue ink around. Grabbed scraps of the desk and mounted the image; added some Stickles, and some AtYa Spika pen; used some NitWit Pinky Swear papers to mount behind the image; added a strip of washi tape; and use the SU Sassy Salutations set to create the sentiment, stamped in SU Melon Mambo; and added some bling!
You can see the sparkle here.
Anyway, card is completed and up and I am going to enter it into the following challenges:
Sister Act: Anything goes
Aud Sentiment: use any sentiment
CRAFT Challenge: Congratulations
